Did My first D23 Expo and getting in was an EPIC FAIL! Everyone with a "Red" shirt inside and out had no idea what was going on. Was in line at 8:00am for early entry at 9:00 which didn't take place until 10:00 when they had already let in the GP. No line for Charter members ( I'm not one but was in line with some ). A total logistics breakdown, didn't know who was in charge. Concession's ran out More...
Just booked our may 10th 2014 "Fantasy" cruise. Last time it was the east now on to the west. We got lucky and were able to get the same cabin, then were told there was only 128 cabins available for that cruise. Sheila was very helpful. I don't normally do this but if anyone is going on that date give me a shout, we're DINK's 47 & 53 and obviously we don't mind kids :)
Can't wait for ThanksGiving! It's mine and my wife's 5th TG weekend ritual to do the parks (not counting all the other times) Got lucky and was able to reserve a table on TG day at the Carthay Circle. Has anyone eaten there and how is it?
A personal favorite is the beautifully hand crafted music box
A fun video from 2013, the story behind the music box with Clopin, Figaro and the even watch the Tangled Tower being put into the Fantasy Faire:
Of course, no trip to the Fantasy Faire would be complete without a visit to the Royal Hall. Loved this artist rendition, that's just how my girls are when they enter the Hall. ::sigh::
Took this next part directly from Disney Parks Blog:
“After walking into our main entrance, you will first go through a garden-like setting before entering the reception hall,” said Michel Den Dulk, Creative Director of Fantasy Faire for Walt Disney Imagineering. “Once inside the Royal Hall, guests will discover a beautiful gothic interior with nice wallpaper, wall cresting, wood finishes and chandeliers.”
Passing through a series of spaces, including the Grand Hall, you’ll have the opportunity to meet as many as three Disney princesses, from classic stories such as “Cinderella” and “Sleeping Beauty.”
Dont forget to grab a sweet treat from Maurice's Treats! At the time, (isn't there more now?) the adorable cart featured 3 “Twists” and a new signature beverage: Boysen Apple Freeze.
In a tribute to the historic Carnation Plaza Gardens, a shield over the archway leading from Fantasy Faire to Rancho del Zocalo in Frontierland displays the letters “CPG.”
